You’ve got wizards next to 1980s icons wedged between superheros with a pinch of teen heartthrobs and heck, even a splash of aliens and Power Rangers.
It must be Denver Comic Con.
It happens only one weekend a year: Some the biggest names in the world of movies and television flock to Denver to fill the Colorado Convention Center — and you get to meet them.
Stars of “Game of Thrones,” “The Walking Dead,” “Harry Potter,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and many more will be in town this weekend, pens in hand and smiles ready for selfies — but it won’t come cheap. You may even have to dip into your savings: Some selfies could cost you up to $500.
There are several ways to catch a glimpse of your crush or icon:
Main event panels and Q&As are part of the Comic Con experience and are not extra. However, lines for the popular events can get long, so plan ahead.
You can stand in line at their booth in the Celebrity Summit. This option could mean you are waiting in line for hours and you need to show proof of purchase before getting up close and personal. Photos can be purchased and scheduled online ahead of time at denvercomiccon.com/guests.
You can also pre-pay to schedule a photo op with your favorite celebrities. Rather than stand in line, your individual photo session is scheduled in 10-minute window with other fans waiting for their own chance to rub elbows with a pop culture star. For scheduling, go to denvercomiccon.com/ programming and navigate to “Celebrity Summit Photo Ops.”
Here are the celebrities attending the Denver Comic Con as of June 6, along with the days they will be on-site and the price of an autograph or photo.
The lineup is subject to change at any time. And these names are just the highlights: The complete list, including other actors, plus artists and authors, can be found at denvercomiccon.com/guests.
